The Alabama Power Foundation, in partnership with the Alabama Urban Forestry Association, is accepting applications for the 2008 Community Forestry Program.
Over the past nine years, more than $536,000 has been distributed in tree grants to more than 570 cities, counties, schools, and community groups. Grants have been used to buy thousands of trees for planting in community parks, along roadways, and on school grounds, among other sites. “Plant A Tree in Alabama — Community Forestry Project” grants of up to $2,000 are awarded.
This year, a new “Gateway” award will also be given of up to $4,000 each to six communities to beautify their gateways or welcome-sign areas. Community Forestry Project and Gateway grants are available to local governments (cities, towns, communities); educational institutions (city and county school systems, private schools, and universities); and any 501(c)(3) organization. Information and applications are available at the Alabama Power Foundation Web site. Deadline: September 1, 2008
